POWHATAN POINT - Short reports concerning the swimming pool and a new police cruiser were noted at the Powhatan Village Council meeting Tuesday night.
According to Clerk-Treasurer Lisa Armann-Blue, who also works with the Powhatan Park District, the swimming pool is "to open Thursday if it passes inspection."
Police Chief Chet Oldfield told council he had "good news and bad news" about the village's new cruiser. The good news, he said, is the vehicle is to be delivered Friday. The bad news is that the cruiser accessories are the wrong size. It seems that sometime between the time the cruiser was ordered and it was ready to be equipped with items such as a light bar, Ford changed its specifications. There will be a wait of several weeks.
"We've waited this long, I guess we can wait awhile longer," laughed Mayor Mark McVey.
McVey told council the Appalachian Regional Commission grant application has been submitted. The village is requesting paving on Wheeling Avenue, Bank Street, York Street and Cove Drive, and repairs on Cove Road.
In other matters:
Council held a special meeting May 27 at which time action was taken for repair of the marina shelter roof with the work to be done by Woody Perry. The cost was $4,100. Council also contracted the cutting of three trees on Ohio 7 North, to Lehman's Lawn Care and Tree Service. The cost to cut the trees was $450.
